One funny / nostalgic anecdote relating to tech.

Setting up IndiaMART.com with my brother. We set up the firm back in 1996 and began educating SMEs on the importance of going online even when they themselves did not understand the term ‘internet’.  

Back then, many of our customers had not heard of the email, let alone using the internet.

We actually used to print all the queries received over email from buyers overseas and sent it out to our customers over print.

Now, we have 1.2 million suppliers on the IndiaMART.com which speaks volumes about the journey we have taken in the past decade or so.

What’s the biggest tech disaster according to you?

Secondlife.com

One instance where technology solved your problem.

I am an ardent fan of Google.

Google Hangout has enabled me to do video conferencing daily with my colleagues spread across India in the simplest manner.
